During the Apollo 16 Mission, astronaut Ken Mattingly [right] observed strange bright flashes on the surface of the Moon as he orbited the Moon in the Lunar Orbiter.
The "flashes" emanated from the surface of the Moon not lit by the Sun but by "Earth-shine". Mattingly was heard to remark "I'll be damned" before he reported his observation to Mission Control. Mattingly was given instructions to report immediately any similar events as he passed through the next orbit and
preparations were made to investigate and explain the phenomenon. Sure enough as he passed over the same area of the Moon he observed two bright flashes coming from the surface but despite the fact that scientific instruments had monitored the event, no explanation was
However, NASA footage taken during the Apollo Missions does illustrate that "Unknown Objects" were not only seen but were captured on film. In one instance a bright flash is seen on the Moon's surface just as an unidentified object approaches from the left and passes over. In another instance a large, seemingly circular UFO positioned close to the Moon was caught on film.
Doctor Jack Kasher,
[left] of Nebraska University, who has previously worked on highly classified research for NASA and other government agencies, is prepared to risk his reputation by maintaining that there is real evidence of another presence on the Moon. "We really are being visited by Extraterrestrials, we probably have been for some time. I believe that at least some of these UFO reports are genuine. By UFO I mean extraterrestrial space craft. There are enough examples from enough reliable witnesses to suggest that this cries out for investigation".

It has been suggested that the excessive quarantine
periods served by the crews of Apollo 11, 12 and 14 were due to the fact
that the astronauts had to provide detailed reports about the evidence
of an alien presence on the Moon and also provide NASA with the time to
"vet" any photographs.
Is it possible that NASA does not want to reveal to the World that UFOs
were closely monitoring the Apollo astronauts?
A "conspiracy theory "gone mad?
Maybe, but why has NASA not sent astronauts to the Moon since the Apollo
Missions and has no intentions of doing so in the foreseeable future?
Remember, since the Apollo Missions no U.S. astronauts have travelled
into deep space.

It has been alleged that during the Apollo 11 Lunar Mission in 1969, the astronauts actually observed aliens on the surface of the Moon. The evidence for this extraordinary claim is an alleged secret conversation between Apollo 11 astronauts, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, and Mission Control. This conversation was, in fact, monitored by a Russian Physicist and Professor of Mathematics, Dr. Vladimir Azhazha, who
maintained that the encounter occurred shortly after the lunar module landed. He
also stated that the astronauts
report was never heard by the public because NASA censored it. But is there any
other evidence to substantiate the views of those who believe that there is or
has been an "Alien presence" on the Moon?
In 1965 a Russian Lunar probe sent back to Earth, images of a strange "structure" towering over the surface of the Moon. It is estimated that the anomalous "tower" is an extremely tall structure -
possibly 12 Km. high. Whatever the object is - it remains
